View Full Version : Parry should only work on openers

One way to change parry's potency and to allow combos into the game would be to limit parries to opener attacks. That way players could at least attempt their combo chains, at worst only fearing a block or dodge out of it. Attempting a parry on subsequent hits in a combo would only result in a standard block. This would also make it more dangerous to only attempt single attacks over and over.

Just a thought.

Feel free to add in chip damage on all heavies while you're at it ; D

Idk, I think it would make more sense for the parry to useable only to break a combo. Just my 2 cents on the matter.

The trouble right now is that combo's are to dangerous because of parry.

Anyone that can parry you mid-combo is gonna be able to parry your single attacks, too. If you make it only work on openers then newbies will just get parried basically every time they attack (and experienced players will exploit it.) The minute an experienced player gets the opener in they would lock you into an (essentially) unbreakable combo you can't parry out of.
